Ryan Adams - "Heartbreaker"
Apr.20.06 Filed in: music
I feel as though this is one of those albums that can stand up to the test of time and it will be just as amazing of a record 20 years from now as it is today. For the most part I like to think of this favorites category as a place to house albums with this quality. Heartbreaker really strikes an amazing balance between rock and country and holds tracks that will get you up and moving but the album also hides within it some of the best song writing I have every heard. Its just a beautiful record. So what kind of music is it anyway? It is hard to pinpoint, it holds a nice folk kind of a feel in many of the songs but with a rock music edge to it if that helps at all. I guess the americana term could be used. OK, so now I feel like I am just rambling on here. I just wanted to point this album out for people that have not heard it before. It's just so damn good that you could at least check it out. Hows that for a professional sounding opinion?
This is also available on emusic which means you could get it for nothing should you decide to plunge and get their trial offer of 50 mp3s... Heres an emusic link
